Movie Info

Life is good for ad man Ruben Guthrie - he leads a party boy lifestyle, has a model fiancée and lives in a house on the water. He's at the top of his game, until some drunken skylarking lands Ruben at the bottom of his infinity pool, lucky to be alive. His mum hits the panic button, and then his fiancée leaves him, but not before issuing him one final challenge: If Ruben can do one year without a drink, she'll give him another chance... RUBEN GUTHRIE is the story of one man not only battling the bottle, but the city that won't let him put it down.

Critic Reviews for Ruben Guthrie

All Critics (10)

It's all a bit low stakes,

September 27, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Cowell makes his feature film début as writer/director/producer, bringing it to the screen with Patrick Brammall in terrific, tormented form as our titular 'hero'.

January 1, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/5

Perhaps Ruben Guthrie makes more sense if you watch it while drunk. Being sober, I loathed it.

August 14, 2015 | Full Review…

An initially archetypal trajectory (boy loses girl; boy goes on mission to get her back) becomes something curlier and less conventional, with lashings of abrasive dialogue that recall its stage origins

July 25, 2015 | Full Review…

It might be a case of something essential getting lost in the translation, but first-time director Brendan Cowell's adaptation of his play about an alcoholic advertising man on the road to redemption is a well-intentioned mess.

July 24, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

As a writer and actor, Cowell is obviously talented if erratic; as a filmmaker he has a long way to go.
